am, mitt rom economy coming here tomorrow where i am and paul ryan coming here today. that's why we're here. listen, mitt romney thinks they can grab pennsylvania away from the democrat, a state the republicans haven't won since 9 1988. >> paul, thanks. randi. >>> new numbers on where things stand in florida. take a look here. this nbc news/"wall street journal/"marist poll. florida is the biggest of all the expected swing state with 29 electoral votes. >>> on the campaign trail in ohio former new york mayor rudy giuliani offered a scathing critique of the president and said president obama should resign. it happened at a rally for mitt romney yesterday. mr. giuliani slammed the administration on a lot of topics. benghazi, others. >> they're real excited today because unemployment didn't go back to 8%. ility 7.9%. they should be ashamed of themselves. the greatest country on earth, the greatest country in the history of the world and our growth is at 1.2%. he should resign! >> the founder and ceo of news corp rupert murdoch is also sounding off on the election via twitter. he blast
as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to be on us in the future. >> all of the skills i had are obsolete now. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time. i see a lot of poor people. >> shut down, closed, reduced wages, ship the jobs overseas. we lost 55,000 factories. >> we're probably never have the things that we did
hampshire's economy is humming along and unemployment is at less than 6%, so when president obama and mitt romney visit the battleground state, their stump speeches tend to include promises of more job creation. our david mattingly visited two small businesses there to see what their executives think about the candidates' proposals. >> reporter: randi, victor, the unemployment rate in this critical battleground state is under 6% and well under the national average, so when it comes to campaign promises about creating jobs, businesses here say leave that to the professionals. two new hampshire small businesses that found a way to beat the recession. one is a free-wheeling tech company. producing codes that makes e-mail and the internet work better. the other has been in business for five generations. >> high carbon steel photograph needles. >> reporter: manufacturing metal pins for everything from antique phonographs to the military. >> these are ping that go into the ammunition boxes for the u.s. government. >> reporter: in tough times they both found ways to create new jobs. what every ca
in the battleground state of virginia. all day, in fact. last hour in roanoke, he hammered away on the economy and how in his words americans are in worse shape today than they were four years ago, he says because of president obama's policies. our jim acosta also working the campaign trail, and this is the nuts and bolts of the reaction. >> at an event in roanoke, virginia, mitt romney ended a political truce with president obama in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, while he avoided attacking the president during a series of stops across the state of florida, that was not the case here in virginia. romney went after what he often hears outside some of his events from some of the president's supporters who sometimes chant "four more years," romney said it should be more like five more days. and then he went after an idea the president floated out in recent days when mr. obama talked about potentially naming a secretary of business in a second term. here's what romney had to say. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business, and i do. a
in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> i don't think so. the last month, the unemployment rate came down three ticks. and the romney campaign complained that we hadn't created more jobs. this month, the number of jobs created was 30%, 40% higher than expected and was fairly strong. and then they criticize that the unemployment rate ticked up one tenth. it's the last number before the election, so i think both sides are going to see, try to go through and interpret what it means. i think overall, most economists view it as a fairly solid report. and until we get the growth rate of the economy up faster than 2%, 2.5%, this is probably about what we should expect from a solid report. >> how does one explain the kind of inconsistency? 7.9%. that's up, with unemployment. then you talk about adding 171,000 jobs in october. >> yeah, a great question. a lot of people misunderstood how the jobs work. there's two surveys. the jobs come from a survey of businesses. the unemployt rate comes from a survey of people. each month, there's a lot of variability in bo
, because month to month jobs reports, it is a important milestone by which we can gauge whether the economy is improving. and then, you know, judge the president, what the president is doing. i want you to take a look back to the worst of this recession, guys. this is october of 2009. look at this, the unemployment rate was above 10%. and in this month, 7.9%. you've been traveling to the swing states as i have, what are you hearing, are people feeling better off? today's numbers help any of the candidates? >> well, i tell you, don, we have been on the battleground bus state tour from florida to ohio. people understand the economy is improving. but the real debate is whether it is fast enough and whether mitt romney could have done a better job. in toledo, ohio, today, one of the battle ground counties of ohio, the must win buckeye state, i spoke to mayor bell, he put it out that january 2009, unemployment here was 12.6% in this county. today it is around 7.5, lower than the national average. that is a measurable improvement. that doesn't mean the economy is going on all cylinders right now.
before america votes, we are about to get the last pre-election numbers on jobs in our economy. >> i got nothing left. memories or anything else. everything is ruined. ruined. >> survivors of hurricane sandy still waiting for help. they are worrying about the future. good morning to you. welcome to "early start." >> it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. we are going begin with a sprint to the finish line. the last major hurdle in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the un

that this economy is not moving in the right direction. the other thing that he has really been hitting and hitting it hard is this notion of bipartisanship. he -- >> all right. that is cnn's jim acosta traveling with the romney campaign. we'll get back to jim and get that straight for you. we're going to move on now. of course, jim, traveling with the romney campaign, they feel they're going to have some momentum. they hit seven states today. that's a lot of states to cover. debuke is in the center of the campaign today. mitt romney at lunchtime, president obama, there right now. our chief correspondent is there as well. jessica, that city is getting plenty of attention today. at least the two men weren't there at the same time. that would have been a bit awkward. >> yeah, although they would have had an unscripted debate. that would have been unusual and probably good for the public. this state getting so much attention because it is one of those must-win battlegrounds, don. and it tells us so much about the -- the map tells us so much about where they're fighting in these final days. where we ar
down unemployment in a significant way at this point. it's been kind of stuck. the economy added 114,000 jobs in september. this one is the last option before the election. it takes on that much more importance. both sides are likely to find something to talk about. president obama would say it's better than the 800,000 jobs we were losing when he took office. and romney could come out and say the unemployment rate is still high. and both would be right. economists would say it doesn't really matter. what's going on in your own life? do you have a job? does your spouse have a job? most people will vote with what is happening in their own lives. >> most people hear blah, blah, blah. >> it is really what you're feeling more than statistical. >>> more charges expected in the penn state sex abuse case against the university's former president, graham spanier. multiple reports say pennsylvania's attorney general is expected to announce perjury and obstruction of justice charges against spanier later today. as you know, spanier, in the wake of sandusky's scandal resigned. and he denied kno
of water, the economy has to keep going, and there is potentially, meacham, some sort of symbolism as well. they're grappling with that in other towns and communities up and down the east coast are probably dealing with similar types of decisions as they try and move on. >> it's phenomenally complicated. >> really complicated. >> at what point do you show you're strong, restill yebzisil. >> no better way. >> the debate about what should be done after the attacks 11 years ago. it was the same kind of tension. and i'm not sure what i would do. i'm glad it wasn't my decision. i understand folks who feel this way. >> the marathon is an extraordinary amount of resources. and i think they really need to make sure, particularly staten island, they're doing everything they can for those people before they have this big display over the weekend of law enforcement and all sorts of resources to put this thing on. >> if there was a symbolic action, there's a huge amount of corporate money that goes into the sponsorship of the marathon. if they were to cancel the marathon and all the corporations that
of us in our economy, of course. alison kosik. alison can't hear me. sorry, we're having technical difficulties there. you got the gist. >>> we're taking a closer look at the aftermath of superstorm sandy and the full scope of the devastation that's just now coming into view. these are new pictures that just fed into cnn moments ago. the storm's death toll just in the united states stands at 40. new york police say 22 people died in the city alone. take a look at this video from an nypd helicopter. across the region thousands of people had to be rescued from their flooded homes. many were chased to their rooftops to escape the rising waters. and today, as national guards troops roll into overwhelmed towns and villages, people are ask i asking when will things ever get back to normal? it seems so far out of reach right now. more than 6 million homes and businesses still without power. and many of those people who live along the northeastern corridor will be shivering because, you know, without electricity that means they don't have heat either. and they won't have heat for days and
, and the economy is the most important thing. guess what, in new jersey, the economy just got a hell of a lot tougher. and it's all about laerpd right now. and i hope that president obama and chris christie really by display giving an example to lawmakers who said that they were going to washington to work on behalf of constituents, because i think that we are seeing some real leadership right now, and i think that they can have an impact. and i think it would be good for constituents around the country now to ask the questions of those who are running for office, can you do what those two guys are doing? get your cell phones out? i want to know what you think. tonight's question. do you approve of the federal government's response following hurricane sandy? text "a" for yes, "b" for no to 622639. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me tonight, new jersey senator robert menendez. he, of course, was with president obama and governor chris christie today. senator, great to have you with us. you were right in the middle of all
conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there. customer erin swenson bought so, i'm happy. today. sales go up... i'm happy. it went out today... i'm happy. what if she's not home?

(together) happy. i love logistics. >>> welcome back. are you looking at video from yesterday in new york. it captured the moment when the arm of a cop structure crane toppled over and started dangling above midtown manhattan. hard to look at and see from that vantage point. the crane is still dangling as we speak. mayor michael bloomberg said that experts believe the crane is stable and tomorrow the work
. if it's bad news, it could throw the debate right back to jobs and the economy which is mitt romney's strong point in this election as it runs to its conclusion. >> well, it doesn't seem that the news is going to be all that bad even if it is bad because the aap numbers indicated that there were more -- there was more hiring. obviously the trajectory has been good, both on the political side with the polls as well as on the economy. you have the stock market rebounding, you've got manufacturing now at a 15-year high. the numbers out of the manufacturing sector are very good. so much of that attributable to the saving of the auto industry. so i think the momentum clearly is on the president's side and i think a lot of the early voting numbers that we are seeing where the president has a huge advantage in many of these swing states, if not all of them, attributable again to his ground game, i think that the numbers are getting to be baked in a bit. >> they are. the one thing that stood out to me is the washington post abc poll, 48.56% obama, 48.49 romney. i mean, literally, negligable
, kiddo. lights out. ♪ (sirens) (train horn) ♪ vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. >>> breaking news to report. late news the holland tunnel, one of the major arteries into and out of manhattan will partially reopen tomorrow morning. that's good progress. one of the two tubes opening back up for rush hour tomorrow. still for many, getting around tonight and tomorrow is going to remain a nightmare. take a look at this. these are pictures from outside the barclays center in brooklyn. those are thousands and thousands of people waiting for hours to get on buses into manhattan. this is what it looks like when new yorkers lose the subway system that we all rely on. the subway has been shut down since sunday night. limited subway service started today but very limited. nothing below 34th street where there's no power. if you're familiar with new york, that's a huge chunk of the city. there is still no power to lower manhattan. entire subway stations are flooded. jason carroll got an upclose look at the south bury statio
the economy grow. and that's a problem, right? because that is essentially mitt romney's whole reason for living. this is the republican party's economic reason for existing. it is all premised on this idea that if you cut taxes on the rich, the job creators, right, that will jump-start the economy. this is the whole basics of the party's economic philosophy. the entire economic basis on which mitt romney is running for president. this is why congressional republicans pledge their first born children to a man named grover. and here comes this nonpartisan, highly respected, unimpeachable agency that says we looked into it, turns out the whole thing is bunk. giving rich people a huge tax break doesn't help the economy but it sure does help rich people. so what do you do if you're the republican party? well you pressure that agency into burying the report. which is exactly what republicans in congress did this fall. "the new york times" is now reporting that shortly after senate republican aides started complaining about the report and its findings, the congressional research service, th
. >> right. and they're trying to run against what people have experienced about the economy. you can make all sorts of arguments about how people feel, where the economy is really going, but they know what their pocketbook is saying. and in ohio where the economy has been that much better than the national numbers, it translates into better positions for the incumbent. you know, that's why you end up with these ridiculous ads that suggest that the automakers are, in fact, doing something which they're not. and that's when you end up running ens against the compani who are employing the voters you're trying to win over. >> the column leads me to think about something which is in a few days we might have a re-elected barack obama. there's a good chance of that. the people on the right who represent the voice of tens of millions of americans who are going to be freaked out if they have to deal with four more years of the president, people like george will will have to decide what to do in their columns if the president wins. if they continue to say he's a failed president and denounce him or
for voters is what's going on with your own economy an your own life. do you have a job? does your spouse have a job? people are more likely to vote about their own situation. brooke? >> back to the numbers in the report. what is the possibility, alison, the numbers, additional 158,000 jobs added might be foreshadowing to what we get in the all-important jobs report tomorrow? >> the reality is adp missed many times. kind of meant to be an appetizer. as you said, the official labor department report comes out friday and counts both jobs in the private and public sectors. expectation there is not as rosy as adp. economists of cnn money said that they expect a gain of 125,000 positions last month but you know what? even with those gains, we are at this point where we're hardly adding enough to keep up with population growth much less bring down the unemployment rate in a significant fashion and with days before the election, both sides you can bet they find something to talk about in this report, you know, president obama can say it's better than 800,000 jobs losing taking office. romney, he
of early voting. so it's too late anyway. >> the economy has issued -- number one, i want to alert our viewers, janet napolitano has been in staten island touring that devastated area. here she is right now. let's listen in. >> we know that staten island took a particularly hard hit from sandy. and so we want to make sure that the right resources are brought here as quickly as possible to help this community which is so very strong recover even more quickly. just to give you a sense of an overview, it's been mentioned that this was a large storm. the area that sandy covered was roughly the size of europe. we had major disasters in a number of states that president obama already has declared emergency declarations in a number of states that have been declared. we have seen some huge impacts on things like the availability of power. and with of course the loss of power comes attendant losses on things like gasoline. so all of these things, all of these issues being worked now as the community comes back and as we work to support con ed and other utility companies in getting the grid back
you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. >>> welcome back to our continuing coverage of the aftermath of hurricane sandy. we keep getting new pictures that show this storm's strength. different prospectives from people in their own homes. incredible video of winds uprooting a tree on the backyard of a north shore of long island. takes a few seconds. as you can see right there. you can see the ground starting to move up. obviously a very old tree. take a look and listen. >> uh-oh. uh-oh. so sad to see. sandy still hitting parts of west virginia hard tonight. with snow, not rain. heavy, wet snow, weighing down trees, knocking down power lines. utility companies say more than 340,000 customers without power. some areas of state under a blizzard warning tonight. one death is being reported so far there. martin savidge joins us from west virginia. martin, the conditions you have s
long-term deficit reduction can jump start the economy at the same time that housing is starting to recover. and the education agenda that i've got is one that even jeb bush has occasionally complimented because we have said, you can't just give more money into a system without reforming it, and there's got to be more accountability. so there are a whole range of issues, i think, where we can actually bring the country together with a nonideological agenda. the question's going to be how do republicans in congress react post-election. because there's going to be a war going on inside that party. it just hasn't broken out.en un to me. >> let's say you win. boehner is still speaker and the house goes either democratic or republican by one, you're still in the same situation the next four years, so what's going to make the difference? we talked to you about this one on one before. what makes the difference? what is there for americans to believe that democrats and republicans can work together? >> i truly believe that if we can get the deficit and debt issues solved, which i believe
, very small campaign, if you ask me, while the issues could not be larger. the state of the economy being one of them, and then when you have a natural disaster on top of the serious issues that we ought to be discussing about the future of the country. i think what you are probably going to see is a tone change. now, i would also say to you that at the end of a campaign is usually a time when you do see a shift in tone because people start making their closing arguments, and you don't ever want to end a presidential campaign on a negative, nasty note. you are going to be running negative ads, sure, but the candidate himself will try and move to a higher ground always at the end of a campaign. >> let's talk a little bit about how this storm might actually impact voter turnout. we're seeing a new poll today that shows the presidential race is actually tightening in pennsylvania. the new franklin-marshall polls showing president obama with a 49% to 45% edge. it's down from last month. there are some areas in pennsylvania that are critical on the east coast, blue collar workers, that t
was played for the crowd. >> an extraordinary chief executive officer. i know he understands the economy. >> he's uniquely qualified to get our economy moving again. >> takes control. >> not a stuffed shirt guy. >> charismatic. >> he is rock solid. >> authentic leader. >> he knows he's one of the guys that can do it, turn it around. >> as reported here last night, romney campaign chief strategist stuart stevens explained the use of the video this way -- "i don't know what happened. some volunteer just pressed play, i guess." by the time mitt romney was doing this fake disaster relief event, he knew that he was not welcome anywhere near the real disaster zone. he learned that the hard way that morning on "fox and friends." >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> yeste

and what bill clinton's role was in doing kind of the right by the economy. and now talking about himself, barack obama, president obama as a leader who unites people. brings people together. and is now going back to the message of change from 2008, saying not talking about changing washington, but bringing americans' voices into washington and talking about himself as a unifier, clearly a mantle he is picking up in the wake of his leadership role in the role he's taken after superstorm sandy. >> it's amazing. the twist and turns this race has taken, i guess every presidential race does in the final days. a new polling out from colorado, still a very tight race there. what does it mean for next tuesday? what do the number show? >> the numbers in colorado show 50-48 for the president. that's a statistical tie. this is a state that is going down right to the very end. you can tell that when you're here. the early voting. this is one of the places republicans have even a slight advantage. that's not the case in any of the other voting states. if you look at colorado, nevada, then to the midw
the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he's lavished on the president and if he doesn't, then he would bear the blame, according to mr. murdoch, for the next four years in barack obama gets in. what do you make of that? >> oh, i don't go that far at all. i think at the point at which chris christie was saying that it was all quite legitimate. i think president obama at the beginning of this did keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of
on three ideas. one is that the economy would be so bad that they wouldn't have to have a plan of their own. that didn't prove to be the case. the numbers have been ticking up at exactly the wrong moment for them. the second was a whole philosophy about big government. sandy really hurt them there because that was a big government moment if ever there was one. and the third is they could just outspend the president by an incredible margin. when you look at how close the president is to matching their money, even though he lost wall street by something like five to one, that's remarkable. he basically neutralized one of their main campaign strategies by being able to do that. >> and you have to wonder how all the lunatic conservatives spending their millions on this are going to feel if their guy doesn't end up winning? let's be honest. that wouldn't seem like the best investment. but what do i know? >>> good morning romney is getting ready to hold a campaign rally with his wife ann. here is a look at colorado springs where the republican nominee is expected to speak in just a moment. we'll
